Stothard followed up a knock of 49 against Dunnington last time out by making 50 against Woodhouse Grange on Saturday.

Ross Sedlgey was also in fine form, top-scoring with 55, while opener Alexis Twigg (39) helped lay a solid platform for the visitors’ innings.

'Gate closed on 204/7 in the end, however this total did not prove to be sufficient.

Tom Geeson-Brown (3-43) bowled excellently when Grange replied, though the hosts eased to a six-wicket success with more than five overs to spare.

Sessay also lost out, going down on the road at Sheriff Hutton Bridge in a rain-affected contest.

The Thirsk outfit’s batsmen struggled in the face of some miserly bowling and none managed more than Mark Jackson (19) as they limped to 109/7 in 38 overs.

Bridge then romped to victory with 14 overs in hand.
